I visited Goodwill Industries this week because I was asked to do a talk to the parents and teachers about the importance and benefits of counselling for disabled children.
For those of you who do not know Goodwill Industries is a school for physically and mentally challenged young people located in Woodbrook. The school teaches them trade and practical skills to make them marketable to take care of themselves, find a job and cope with the challenges of their lives. Mrs. Barbara Olumide-Alleyne is the CEO and she has been doing wonderful work with these special young people.
I had the pleasure of listening to them play pan. Below is a clip of their talent. I felt so proud seeing them play since they appeared to really enjoy playing the pan. Also I can’t play pan to save my life and here are these gifted and talented young people keeping rhythm better than me!
So please enjoy my little video!
